You can do what saintbrie suggests. Just compleatly get rid of the email client and have your script dl the email and store it in mbox format. But one more reference for you. You may want to look at PopFile. Popfile acts as a proxy between your email client and your server. It can classify your emails for you and you can probably add some plug-ins to do the manipulation you are looking for. They are currently developing plug-ins that adds newsgroup classifications; it is designed to be modular. Worst case it will give you some ideas.

Ever since my email was harvested I have used Popfile very successfully to classify my email. I promote it whenever I can. It turned a bad situation into something very tolerable. PS. Yes you could do something with Win32::OLE but why... Don't get me wrong if you look at my other posts I am a proponent of it. The problem is you would be locked into Outlook. By using a proxy or a perl script that does it all you would be able to use any client you wanted without recoding.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
